Want to create a kitchen that’s the envy of your friends? One that would make a Michelin-starred chef drool? Officine Gullo takes Florentine metalworking to a whole new level with their custom ranges, vent hoods, refrigerators and countertops. They start with the finest iron, steel and brass, which is then clad in vivid enamels available in a wide variety of hues from delicate to daring. Though the designers and craftsmen are based in Italy, the dreaminess of their custom-created culinary visions are found in the finest homes worldwide — from London to Tel Aviv to Cape Town and, of course, in Miami. While this leads to a highly varied clientele, they all have some key things in common: An appreciation of good food, an ability to share in the pleasure of living in a refined space and Officino Gullo’s passion for well-made things; OfficineGullo.com.
